Dentistry should be conservative. That's the view espoused by Dr. Michael Wayne Sturkie Jr. and his team, who only perform the bare minimum of necessary treatment. Not only does this approach foster oral health, but it also benefits guests by limiting their trips to the often-intimidating, eerily comfortable dental chair. To keep visits at a minimum, the staff's thoughtful philosophy places an emphasis on preventive maintenance, such as fluoride treatments, and patient education, including proper brushing and flossing techniques that could prevent future problems.
When treatment is necessary, Dr. Sturkie and his staff tend to mouths with a variety of services. Besides regular checkups, they can perform root canals or fill in gaps with custom-made bridges. Wisdom-teeth removals ensure that patients refrain from continually shouting out trivia answers. The doctor visits with each patient to devise custom treatment plans and carefully explain options before proceeding with treatment.
